Hi All

We are just updating/reminding you about the Intercounties Triathlon that is taking place at Hollywood lake, Monaghan on Saturday 05th May next.

Due to the lovely Irish weather we have been having lately we are making some changes by giving all our Athletes the option of using a Kayak in the water instead of doing the Swim. However in order to have the race as competitive as ever we will have the kayak distance equal in stature to the swim distance so no one is at an advantage !! Because we have added this option of Kayaking this will no longer be a Triathlon Ireland sanctioned event. So you will no longer require a one day licence.

The Swim/Kayak will still take place at the lovely tranquill Hollywood lake, Ballinode Monaghan with both Swimmers and Kayakers entering the lake at the same time. For you who wish to take part but has not sailed a Kayak before we will be providing the Kayaks which are two-man open top kayak so don’t worry about your ability.

The cycle leg is a repeat of last year which takes competitors on a fairly flat route which is repeated three times around local roads which are partially closed.

Again the run is fairly flat which a slight incline just before the turnaround point . Each lap is 2.5k.

Entries are now open at a reduce price of €35.00 through the Run Ireland website www.runireland.com/forms/inter-counties-triathlon-2012
and full details are available at www.mucknotri.com We will also be taking entries on the morning but if you wish you can pre-register by texting your name and Date of birth to Dessie on 086/3848113

We hope to see you all there !!
